Veggie Delight

A recent study in the UK has revealed that people who are vegetarian are likely to have a higher IQ than their non-veg counterparts.

A Southampton University team found those who were vegetarian by 30 had recorded five IQ points more on average at the age of 10.

Researchers said it could explain why people with higher IQ were healthier as a vegetarian diet was linked to lower heart disease and obesity rates.

Researchers said the findings were partly related to better education and higher occupational social class, but it remained statistically significant after adjusting for these factors.

Vegetarians were more likely to be female, to be of higher occupational social class and to have higher academic or vocational qualifications than non-vegetarians.

However, these differences were not reflected in their annual income, which was similar to that of non-vegetarians. [Link]

More and more people are turning vegetarian in the western world and such studies would definitely give a boost to the vegetarian movement.

  • That explains why foxes, owl and other carnivorous are regarded as smart and cunning while donkeys and other herbivorous considered dumb

  • pegasus, the study was on human beings and not on animals.

    Since you didn't understand this simple fact...you must be a non-vegetarian.

  • This is stoopid. Utterly ridiculous. Am a veggie, sitting in the american mountain west (one place in the world where being one seriously limits your choices) - and can vouch that being veggie is not any healthier or leads to any competitive advantage than not being one. It's just a different way of life.

  • Women are more likely to be vegetarians. and vegetarians are more likely to have higher IQ. If this implies that women have higher IQ, then that is absolute nonsense. Everyone knows that the reason why women are doing better now is not because of intelligence, but because of quotas and because they have rights without responsibilities and men have respnsibilities without rights....the way the feminazis always wanted it to be so that women could be as bad as they want and get away with it. I just hope a worldwide muslim invasion puts these damn feminazis in their place and makes these woman work their ass to get returns instead of sucking the blood of their dads and husbands for the same

  • huh? redrajesh,
    Maybe you bloody non-vegs don't even know where to look for the right gals.

    You must be sooo dumb...poor you!

  • I know that India is definitely not the place to look for the right gals. Indian women are going to make among the worst wives on earth who have the most rights and the least responsibilities espescially with the passing of the DV act which is more draconian than most american and european laws. The only marriages that can work in India are ones between SC/ST males and non SC/ST females as power balance is present only in that. All other relationships are doomed due to the complete imbalance of power...and as you know, it is imbalance of power which leads to corruption. And by the way, I judge what will happen in the long run based on circumstances...just like what Goldratt advised.

  • I am wondering if a comparison between veggies and NVs in America is a fair sample set. If I am not mistaken, Americans turn vegetarians by choice and not by custom.

    So, logically speaking, I would say people who turn vegetarian, are more capable of analytic reasoning... and hence figure higher on the IQ scale.

    Just an idea.. but does it hold water?
